Earlier today we posted about how Mark Foley (R-FL) is getting off scott free on a legalistic technicality. Nor does it look like any law enforcement agencies are looking into the connection to Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and all the Republican gay porno/escort murders that have been happening all around him. Another Republican rising star ex-rising star, isn't getting off the hook quite as easily, though.

The last we checked in with Michael Flory a Republican lawyer and activist who formerly headed the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans, he had just reversed his earlier claims of innocence and pleaded guilty to raping another Young Republican. When he faced the judged yesterday, Flory emulated one of his heroes, Irving Libby (AKA- "Scooter"), claiming he had already suffered enough and that this kind of justice isn't for people like him. Like every Republican who gets caught doing anything wrong, he blamed alcohol. He also told the judge that "his humiliation and self-destruction should be punishment enough for his guilty plea to a sexual-battery charge."

The judge, Peter Corrigan, must have been one of those law and order judges the Republicans are always so gung-ho about-- until they stand and face them on the wrong side of the bench. Corrigan exploded: "I'm sickened that he is an attorney." And then he threw the book at him, sentencing him to 5 years in prison, the maximum term after the plea-bargain. He whined that his political career has been ruined. Why is it ruined? He's a Republican and his behavior will probably enhance his chances to go all the way. I mean just look at David Diapers Vitter; he's still the highest ranking Republican in the state of Louisiana and apparetly in no trouble with anyone.

Flory, who has a reputation of sexually assaulting other young women in his capacity of head of the Young Republicans, has had his law license suspended and will in all likelihood be disbarred.


Wendy Cortez, the woman Dave Diapers Vitter (R-LA) was seeing for years, tells all, including about how small he is. I guess he could prove her wrong in court.

Perhaps our young Mr. Flory will gain a better understanding of what it means to suffer "humiliation and self-destruction" when his fellow inmates introduce him to the singular joys of "tossing the salad" and "smoking a joint" prison style.
Were my fervent hopes to be answered, he would serve his time in a regular prison (as opposed to a Republican-Lite institution) and Messr. Flory could begin his education in the finer points of prison etiquette.
Ah, good times, good times.

In fact, I would go so far as to say that this particular fine Young Republican might soon find himself wishing that he had abandoned his Yellow Elephant comrades and offered his organizational talents to our armed forces serving in Iraq, sooner rather than later.
Then again, perhaps he will gain the skills (however painfully acquired)that his buddies McHenry and McConnell find so enticing.
One can only hope.

Another idea:

Do like the old days. Do the time or join the army in iraq for five years. Frontline only.

I'm with Steve on this. Back in those 'olden days', I had a young (17) private assigned to my unit "by the judge", so to speak. Seems he had gotten caught running a numbers game in Philly. Not being a 'runner for' mind you, he actually owned and operated his own numbers game.

"Welcome to the unit. That foxhole over there is yours, make yourself at home"

For a crime like rape, they should not be placed in a special facility. It is a crime of violence and he should be in the regular population.

What can be done to get some attention to the McHenry issue?
Rolling Stone has an article on the Kocis murder.
